As you are aware, we are planning to erect a permanent observation tower at Borchester Abbey. A meeting is taking place on site, this Wednesday, 7th at 1100hrs between the local contractors and some Royal Engineer bods who will be overseeing the construction.
The Intelligence boys have been on the ball for once. They've gotten wind of a plan by local extremists to kidnap the contractors and / or kill the army personnel. Also, looks like the word is out amongst the locals and a demonstration against the work is likely to take place. We've nobbled the bus company so don't expect more than 20-30 civilians to be involved.
The Borchester Youth Front are behind the plan. Expect 4-6 Tangos armed with hand guns, shotguns and possibly a sub machinegun.
At your disposal are Red Team - yourself, Gaz, Baz, Daz and Blue Team - Ginge, Mac, Mick, Taff
You are to plan an operation that will safeguard the civilian contractors and army personnel.
Intent - Neutralise any demonstration of armed force by whatever means necessary to achieve the mission and minimise civilian casualties
Scheme - Prevent Contractors and army personnel being taken prisoner or harmed by armed terrorists.
Transport will be available to insert you into grid reference 1348776 at 01:22hrs. Pickup and policing details to follow once you have formulated a plan.
This was emailed to Maff before the game and he had a fun distraction from work whilst devising his plan. In the end he opted for a Q Car tactic. I don't know why, but he grants me with far more sneaky bastard than I actually am, and felt the Q Car trick, replacing the RE personnel and Contractors with suitably washed and scrubbed SAS troopers would foil any evil intent I had up my sleeve.....
